    Description

    New York Yankees Stars Signed Original Artwork Lot of 5 from "Raitt Collection". From his college days in the early 1930's to the turn of the century, autograph collector John Raitt drew sketches of famous people which he would mail to them, ask them for their autograph and they would return to him for his collection. In more than 70 years he put together a very impressive collection including movie and television actors, politicians, singers, military, government (domestic and foreign) and sports figures, mostly baseball players including many Hall of Famers. There are at least 1,600 signed sketches, and Heritage Auction Galleries is proud to present hundreds of these pieces, which we will feature in a number of different sales.

    Offered here is a 5x8" sketch featuring Don Johnson signed in 9/10 black ink, a 5x8" sketch featuring Randy Gumpert signed in 9/10 black ink, a 5x8" sketch featuring Johnny Hopp signed in 7/10 black ink, a 5x8" sketch featuring Bill Johnson signed in 9/10 black ink and also a 5x8" sketch featuring Aaron Robinson (personalized) signed in 10/10 black ink. Pieces exhibit the typical pair of horizontal mail folds, light scrapbook tape remnants and some light wear. Auction LOA from JSA.
